Back to school coats for boys…


Next Black Padded Jacket


Next Parka Jacket

I shared with you my favourite girls schools coats, so it’s only fair that I share my boys picks. I usually find it harder for the boys but this year I think I actually like the boys style more than the girls. Far more choice.

KAPLA 6801 280 Box (with guide book)

Another weekend, another toy to share. I posted a video of Bobby playing with these blocks and had quite a few requests as to what they were. These have been one of the most played with toys in our house, not only by Daisy and Bobby but also by our friends kids and the dads and grandads, Mark can pass many an hour building fancy houses. The set I have shared is the one we have and it has a free booklet with it with lots of ideas as to what to make with step by step instructions. These are not cheap but definitely worth the money if you think about the cost per play.

Boy love…



You should know by now that I am a huge fan of Mango for myself, but I think I am starting to love it even more for the kids. Their collections are just so cool and they seem to nail it every time. I could have added more to this list but some of the items were a bit wintery for this supposed summer!

Marks and Spark’s new baby love…

I truly love it when all the new items start hitting the shops, I’m not great with sales, they bore me very quickly as it so hard to find the things you love in the size you need. Above are all my new favourite baby and toddler items from the fantastic Marks and Spencer’s.

Insect Lore Butterfly Garden…




Insect Lore Butterfly Garden

We bought Daisy this for her birthday in June, be aware that you order the caterpillars seperate to this butterfly garden (but get a voucher in the box to order the caterpillars at a reduced price of £2.99). It is truly amazing to watch. The whole process has taken about 5 weeks, but you really can notice a difference each day and it is really fun to watch. The caterpillars got bigger and bigger (about 10 times their original size) and then we watched as they changed into Chrysalides. Daisy and Bob have thoroughly enjoyed it and have learnt so much about caterpillars and butterflies as there is an instruction book that comes with it that has lots of fun facts. We will definitely be ordering some more.

P.S; The caterpillars can only be ordered between March and September.

Electronics Discovery Kit Smart Electronics Block Kit for Children

I shared Bob playing with this little kit over on Instagram stories yesterday and so many people got in touch asking where it was from as their children would love it, so here it is. It really is fabulous, Bobby has played with it all weekend. It says 8+ but Bob is just 7 and can do it. It has straight forward instructions with it and you can make a radio, lamp, electronic fan, music doorbell and much more.

For the boys…


Shorts Two Pack

In the summer Bob lives in his shorts, he would wear them every day if I let him, even in the rain. Therefore we need to have a good stash. I’m loving the ones above and also these 2 pack of chinos. These ones are also cool in this colour and this colour.

Below are some more favourites.
